At Convatec, we’re on a journey to forever caring. It’s our promise to giving patients and healthcare providers the support they need as we bring to life our vision of Pioneering trusted medical solutions to improve the lives we touch.
Convatec - Forever Caring
Convatec’s ‘forever caring’ promise is designed to reflect our ongoing transformation to become a more patient-centric, agile, and accountable organisation, and comes at the back of a global survey conducted with 200 nurses & caregivers and 200 patients across all 4 categories - wound care, continence care, stoma care, infusion therapy - through Wakefield Research in the US.
The survey identified a care gap faced by patients, caregivers, and their medical teams
- 96% of Nurses who are caring for patients with long-term health conditions feel they need more time, resources, and education to fully care for and support their patients.
- 99% of Patients & Caregivers agree that stigma can negatively impact or slow down the perceived healing of a patient with a current health condition.
We recognise this care gap faced by patients, caregivers, and their medical teams and we are committed to providing additional support, resources, and services as part of our ‘forever caring’ promise.
